Slogging is a very accurate choice of words Nick.

Thanks Angel.

Hey Mike - sorry to hear about what sounds like a nasty flu/cold! You've been slogging through this for a while now - hope you're feeling better soon!

As for the campaign, no worries - I can't start for a while anyway -lol...not exclusively scratchbuilding right now, but I'm building another tedious T-55...the Aber and styrene add ons just deserve one more build!

Get well soon -
Nick

I do apologize (for the second time) regarding the possible scratch built campagin proposal but according to the Doctors I went from having the Flu straight into having a severe case of what they termed the common cold. While getting better on both those fronts I now have some sort of inner ear infection that is causing me to have vertigo which is seriously throwing my balance and eyesight off. I have had only about three days of somewhat smooth sailing since Thanksgiving. (In which I worked on my 1/32nd scale Lysander.) Other than that there has been no modeling and little or no posting during that time.

I wonder Angel if you might care to post the request for the scratch built campaign in my stead?


Mike

p.s. To Tim Martin - you have not heard from me for all the same reasons listed above. Hope your wife is doing well.

Hi there folks

I have to say I had lost all interest in forums when Photobucket did the dirty on everyone and left all the fabulous work of my favourite builders' works unsupported and photo less !

I will be meeting up with my IT savvy pall this weekend and hopefully get my laptop tweeked to some alternative photo hosting site !

I need you guys egging me on to build my stalled Scratch build projects and most want to finish my Lightweight Landrover and a UBRE (Unit Bulk Refueling Equipment) pod to put on the back of the fantastic KFS Bedford MK ! ,,,,,,,,,,,,, Both builds will be in 1/24 scale !

I am still in awe of all you guys with the multiple skill sets and know I still have such a long way to go to get to the standards of you guys !

I will get myself sorted and therefore please count me in on the campaign !

All the best guys

Nige

As I say for me to file the paperwork - had planned to do that last Sunday but plans changed. Started builds tentatively approved so OK to start any build you have in mind.

Svetoslav, that truck is amazing! But smoking those enormous cigarettes is dangerous for the crew!


O.K.
Then I`ll change the subject.

Been working of late on a couple of M26 MLRS rocket pods as loads for my LHS trucks and CROPS containerized flatracks, Here are the first results. Of course the kit I bought only had two pods so for the time being I had to multiply them using Photoshop.



F.Y.I. - It took considerably longer to place all those many decals than it did to construct the pods themselves! However it became immediately clear that the decals make the model.

Attn: Scratch Builders


Gentlemen

I am proposing a scratch builders campaign - any subject, any scale, any era, any medium.

The model does not have to be totally scratch built. Only a significant portion or a single significant feature needs be scratched to qualify. Started builds allowed. (a chance to finish some of those shelf queens!)

Also if editorial management allows - models being built for other campaigns/contests would be allowed AND for those finishing three or more builds a special ribbon in addition to the primary ribbon.

Would you perhaps be interested?

Best Regards
Michael Koenig

(Please feel free to forward on to anyone else you think might also be interested.)

Blackwater; Beautiful work and compared to my building history a seven year delay is perfectly understandable. (Have a towed 88 I just finished that I probably started 20 years ago!)

Here are some of my productions seven years ago, for a number of reasons I have not done them yet.

Tom, I am just joking. I hope you know that. I do exactly the same thing with details and interrupts never to be seen again.



Hi Mike, that's ok - I just didn't have time to ping back a witty riposte! Going down the "fiddly detail nobody will ever notice" rabbit-hole is what I feel the hobby is all about. After all, I'd hate to waste that kind of overachievement on my day job...

But seriously folks, I've got a ton of half-finished projects that would be great for this, and a few still on the starting-blocks too. I like the special ribbon for 3+ entries, but I'm not sure the Armorama campaigns system has that flexibility - I suspect it's one ribbon type only hard-coded into the system. But it couldn't hurt to ask Jim S.

And some pictures of my EOV-4421 Military excavator.
The scale is 1/72.
